Gibson Custom Ebony Acoustics

The Gibson Les Paul Custom was created when Les Paul personally wanted a guitar that “looks like a tuxedo.” Now this timeless aesthetic is available on a quartet of acoustic guitars from Gibson Custom, handmade in Bozeman, Montana, equipped with high-quality components and painted with shiny nitro lacquer in ebony.

With their ebony finish and custom-inspired look, including multi-layer binding, mother-of-pearl block inlays, and the Custom Split Diamond headstock insert, these Gibson Custom acoustic guitars have the “Smoking” charisma and the optical appeal of the legendary Les Paul Custom.

All models are equipped with a solid Sitka spruce top. They are also equipped with L R Baggs Session VTC electronics, which includes an integrated preamp and piezo pickup under the saddle and makes these guitars suitable for stage and studio.

    Beautiful! They look nice, but I would have loved to see the traditional Hummingbird and SJ-200 pickguard detail retained too.
